This is my favourite green smoothie that I keep coming back to- refreshing and delicious on a scorching summer day + bonus points for packing in some leafy greens for an added fibre boost. The combination of fresh juicy mango, coconut and fresh greens with a hint of mint is so incredibly refreshing, it makes total sense once you give it a go.
Adding in a handful of cashews is the ultimate smoothie-hack- it makes any smoothie deliciously creamy and frothy, and it’s a great source of plant protein. The extra fat makes this smoothie a decent liquid breakfast that’ll keep you feeling full for hours! Soak the cashews overnight to help them blend in smoothly, otherwise a spoonful of cashew butter does the job just as well.
